I am a pastor who works full-time serving a congregation here in Greenwich, CT. My goal as a Bible teacher is to present the teachings of Jesus in a clear and applicable way. I ask to questions of whatever text I am reading and they are, "what was the Bible saying then and what is the Bible saying to us today?" The closer we can get to what the Scripture means the better we can use it as a guide for our own lives.
I believe that Jesus invites us to imagine what a world would look like if we were to follow his teachings. What would it look like if we lived more generously, if we practiced unlimited forgiveness, or if we were more selfless? Jesus was a teacher sent by God to show us what life will look like in the kingdom to come and who invites us to live out that kingdom culture here on earth. I have made it my life's work to understand why we, as people, need religion, what religion has to offer, and how to live that religion out in our everyday lives.
